      Replying to PMs

      Please note that you can not reply to a personal message by replying to the notification email. Recently admins have received some email responses to personal messages. This is because some members have replied to the notification email. You can not reply to a personal message via the email. What replying to the notification email does is send a copy of the original message and the reply to the admin email address. It does not send your reply to the person who sent you the message. The email notification of the personal message does request "PLEASE DO NOT REPLY DIRECTLY TO THIS EMAIL!"

Welcome! and Mission Statement

3 posts in this topic

Welcome to Our Place! We're glad you are here. Pull up a chair and make yourself comfortable. Here's our Mission Statement so you know what we're about.

Mission Statement

This website is dedicated to serving men and women who have suffered abuse in all its forms: psychological, verbal, physical, sexual, and spiritual abuse. We are a collective community, whose purpose is to help educate and support those wishing to heal from the damage done. We are not attorneys, nor are we licensed psychologists. We encourage collaboration with other websites similiar in nature.

We foster a respectful climate and a compassionate atmosphere for personal development to a diverse population of victims and survivors of abuse. As such, we expect each poster to keep their interactions within this board polite, while still being able to relay their message in a friendly, yet accurate manner. Should emotions run high or should the manner of transmission of the message interfere with the message itself, it is suggested that the first thing one does is to deliberate prior to posting or if the message is of a confidential nature, to private message the recipient.

We value each poster's experiences and honor the path they have traveled in order to find us. Given the global aspect of the Internet, we expect a collegial and discerning community to evolve; one that respects others' philosophies, religions and choices made to either work things out or to part ways with their abusers. Agreement with another's attitudes and ideas is not required. Civil acknowledgment of one's fundamental differences is. One can disagree without becoming disagreeable. Self-admitted abusers and politics are not a part of this board. Self-awareness and a realization of one's own potential is.

Our priority is safety, self awareness, and education. Lessons about codependency, personal responsibility and the cycle of abuse are keystones which will remain permanently on this site.
